Just got a Vector AMD-but it has no rear mount for a sling. Any ideas?? Anybody have a Vector AMD with a rear sling mount?

The one I had built doesn't have one either.The original just had a small slot cut into the receiver where two "ears" on the swivel are bent apart to hold it in place.I trying to find something to rig up myself.

Good Luck,let me know what you come up with.

When i built my kit it didnt come with the sling swivel, so i used a spare from an old stock i had in my bag of goodies, this is the template from Pookies site. It shows the proper location for the slot. What i did was take an old piece of hack saw blade, cut it to the proper size for the slot, put the piece of steel (saw blade) through the swivel bend it and form the loop by squeezing the two ends in a vise. The i slipped the steel into the receiver and spread the two ends apart. Its a snap to do and it looks authentic. Motorcityman

What about those nylon slings that "Wrap Around" the stock?

I tried making my own but couldn't come up with a way to secure it to the folder.It just slid up and down.Duct-tape isn't a option either(at least not for me,I want it to look good)

I'm keeping mine in my SUV for that "suprise a thug" effect for the rare occasion that I am not able to whup ass on a low rider full of scumbags. So a sling is not really mandatory.
